Capability to automate and control multiple, disparate systems within the home [ABI Research]

Today, only the super rich and super geeks have it


Why don t you have it
Why don’t you have it? the rest of us

You have the basic ingredients

But composition is difficult

  • Homes have users, not administrators

    • Extreme heterogeneity

    • Low expertise and willingness to manage

    • Privacy

  • Rich set of devices

  • Technical issues mix with human and economic ones

  • Experimental difficulties


Interoperability is not sufficient

Summary
Summary the rest of us

  • By simplifying device composition, we can bring smart homes to the mainstream

  • Current approaches fall short

    • Interoperability alone is insufficient

    • Monolithic systems are hard to extend and customize

  • A promising alternative: A home-wide OS
